    This is honestly the best hostel I have ever stayed at! The staff are so friendly and are always there to help. Every night all staff and guests hang out in the outside common area and play lots of fun drinking games etc before heading out on a pub crawl! The hostel has a self service bar which is pretty sick and you just pay for your drinks at the end of your stay. Also you can sign up for dinner each night for just 6€, the meals are waaay better than I had expected. I’ll be back Le Penguin! 🐧

    My stay at LePenguin was a great experience. It had a great, relaxed vibe, and a very nice outside area to sit and relax. The staff was super friendly and the rooms were very clean, and the bed was also super comfy. Great value for money. I highly recommend!

    This might be the cleanest hostel I’ve ever stayed at, and I’ve stayed at quite a few hostels so far. Staff are super nice and I ended up three nights instead of my initial plan of staying just one.

    The place is well located close to the city centre and also the staff is really good. The only downside I saw was the toilets and showers weren't that good, kind old. But the place is very clean and tidy. The staff are aways taking care of the hostel and still giving attention and helping the guests.

    Really homely place. The staff was really sweet. Diego cooked awesome steaks for dinner, organized drinking games and took the guests out to a karaoke bar. Rocio and Sebestain were really sweet. Great location. Would love to visit again.

    Easy to find, good location close to a big supermarket. Good facilities, nice staff, clean and quiet place. The familly dinner and the bar can be a good option if needed. The atmosphere was pretty quiet due to the weather and the low season. Will try to come back in June or September. For the minus: the shower's door was narrow and the handle in the room 4B should be fixed. Otherwise nothing to really complain about.

    One of the worst hostel experience ever. The whole building has potential but clearly nobody gives a damn to put any effort into it. The welcoming is less than basic, doors don't lock properly, there are multiples plugs and extension cords which make the place an hazard to health and safety. The girl at the desk couldn't be bother to be friendly or even care or acknowledge your presence. Low season doesn't justify such a lack of service.
